Google has released an app, called Field Trip, for Android (coming soon for iOS) that attempts to uncover the hidden gems in your neighborhood. Essentially, it’s a recommendation engine, which is what Foresquare should be doing.
Field Trip can help you learn about everything from local history to the latest and best places to shop, eat, and have fun. You select the local feeds you like and the information pops up on your phone automatically, as you walk next to those places.
Great idea for an app and great promo video, however, the proof is in the execution, which evidence of seems to be curiously missing.
